Thought you couldn’t have any more of a girl crush on Emma Watson? It turns out you can.
The 25-year-old is already a UN Women Goodwill Ambassador, a founder of the HeForShe equality campaign AND one of our favourite actresses – and now she’s done something else majorly impressive.
Emma took on the Green Carpet Challenge® for the promotional tour of her new film Regression, a project that aims to encourage a ‘green carpet’ rather than a red one.

Emma was inspired by The True Cost, Andrew Morgan’s documentary about the social and environmental impact of our clothing purchases.
She posted the movie’s poster last week, telling her Twitter fans: ‘I’ve been meaning to tweet about this for a while.
‘Find out why I designed a @PeopleTree collection, travelled to Bangladesh, collaborated with @AlbertaFerretti and did the @GCC_ECOAGE challenge @truecostmovie.’
Emma is referring to the fact that after watching the film, she started designing an ethical line with People Tree and travelled to Bangladesh to see where the clothing was being made.
Since then, she and her stylist Sarah Slutsky have been carefully putting together ensembles for the Regression tour. Each item was picked because it had been made both ethically and sustainably.
They first shared an Instagram photo of a full rail, captioning it: ‘Kicking off Regression! We
‘This rack includes designers that are considering local craft and production, artisan skills, the environment, sustainability and the longevity of fashion!’
They then uploaded images of Emma in green pieces including a Ralph Lauren suede midi, a 60s-inspired ERDEM frock and a thigh-slit Wes Gordon maxi. And she looked totally chic in everything, may we add
